St. Brigid’s cross (from wikicommons)

“Rouse us, O Lord, from the sleep of apathy and from tossing to and fro in our thoughts..

That we may not longer live as in a troubled dream but as people awake & resolved to finish the work You have given us to do.

By Your humble birth root out of our hearts all pride and haughtiness…

That humble ways may content us, if so be that we may serve the humble.

By the life of compassion for those who labor & are heavy laden, teach us to be concerned one for another and to bear one another’s burdens.

By Your hallowed and most bitter anguish on the cross, make us to fear You, and love You, and follow You, O Christ.”

St. Brigid of Kildare  (451-525 A.D.)

grace, peace & prayer

      Thanx Cin – thought it meaningful to share (even if St. Brigid is Irish & St. Paddy’s Day isn’t until Sunday : ) – lots of love to YOU (& grace, peace & prayers) – Gin : )
